Correction week has begun in the NFL, to the chagrin of MDS.
The previously undefeated Cardinals have fallen to the Rams to launch Week Five, but star receiver Larry Fitzgerald sees the glass as 80-percent full.
“We’re still 4-1,” Fitzgerald said after the game, via comments transcribed and distributed by the Rams. “There are great opportunities still ahead of us and we all understand that. We need to fix the mistakes we made tonight and try to bounce back next week against Buffalo.”
So what mistakes need to be fixed?
“How much time you got?” Fitzgerald said. “There were mistakes across the board. It wasn’t just one guy, it was a collective group effort. One guy messing up here, dropped ball here, missed assignment there. If you have a lot of those, offensively it’s going to stop a lot of drives and that’s what happened. We weren’t able to sustain any good drives and when we were able to get down there and put a couple good plays together, we weren’t able to punch it in and obviously get in the [end] zone. That’s what we definitely need to work on.”
The only good news for the Cardinals is that the performance of Kevin Kolb will make it easier to go back to John Skelton, once he gets to 100 percent. A source close to the situation told PFT on Thursday that Skelton, while not ready to play just yet, could be good to go in Week Six.
